We’re six weeks into the competition with five contestants remaining. We’ll have to wait until tomorrow’s results show to see if five become four, or if we’re in for Top 5 Part Deux. But we won’t have to wait to find out what theme the finalists will be tackling!

Via: The Idol Pad

For the seventh week of the finals, there are two themes – One-Hit Wonders (AT&T Fan Pick) and Free Choice.

So there ya have it! By the time it’s all said and done, this season will have had at least one theme that’s never been done before. Bring on the Chumbawamba and Wang Chung!

What do you think of the themes? And what should each finalist sing? Sound off in the comments!

Got Some Additionss:

I don't know who for specifically, but I think it would be awesome to hear someone do Maniac by Michael Sembello for their one hit wonder pick.  TOTAL guilty pleasure of mine.  

Candice - ONE HIT WONDER - Sticking with Virtual Insanity, I'd LOVE to see her do that.  I hear that Elise was planning on doing it the week after she got voted off, and Blake Lewis did it, so there's no question about it being cleared or not.  She'd absolutely KILL it.           - FREE PICK - I still think Use Me would be good, I think it would also be awesome if she did her youtube    version of call me maybe or Like A Star - Corinne Bailey Rae. Or Lauryn Hill's version of Can't Take My Eyes Off of You.

Kree - ONE HIT WONDER - Is Stand By Me by Ben E. King considered to be a one hit wonder? 

Amber- ONE HIT WONDER - It's In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)? Yes? No? Just an idea. 

Angie - ONE HIT WONDER - Is A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton a one hit wonder? it'd be boring but i can see her picking it.             - FREE PICK - If not Gravity maybe Sunday Morning by Maroon 5 or maybe something by One Republic like Secrets? Whatever she does I hope it's current

These are all done really quickly and I haven't given it much thought, but this is the first that comes to mind.

One Hit Wonders:

Candice - VIrtual Insanity by Jamiroquai

Kree - Eye of the Tiger by Survivor (jokes)

Janelle - Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry

Amber - Tainted Love by Soft Cell

Angie - Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice (jokes)


Free Pick:

Candice - Use Me by Bill Withers

Kree - Time After Time by Cindy Lauper or Maybe I'm Amazed by Paul McCartney

Janelle - DO SOMETHING CURRENT.  I hate to say it, but maybe Taylor Swift?

Amber - Who's Lovin' You by the Jackson 5

Angie - Gravity by Sara Barellies

One hit wonders: 
Kree - Little Bitty Pretty One by Thurston Harris
Candice - In the Summertime by Mungo Jerry
Janelle - What's Up by 4 nonBlondes
Amber - Groove is in the Heart by Dee Lite
Angie - Come on Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners

Free pick: 
Kree - Breathe by Michelle Branch
Candice - Skyfall by Adele
Janelle - That Thing by Lauryn Hill
Amber - Cry me a River by Barbara Streisand
Angie - The Water by Feist


Sure, Amber just sang the crap out of a Barbara Streisand song, but honestly, I'd rather have her be great in the same field than middling on something safe like "Ooh, Child." or another Beyonce song. She could even do it Acapella. Janelle needs to take an unfathomable amount of risk to stay in the game next week or beyond (or to at least remain interesting and keep her chances of winning alive). I think Angie has been terribly one dimensional all season long and needs to stop trying to sing some huge song. The more simple it is, the  better, and if it's haunting, all the better for her. 

Candice and Kree just need to keep doing what their doing (though I don't much get the Kree love as everyone else. She seems really...off when I listen to her. Like she's flat when she prolongs her notes. I'm not an expert and I'm in the minority, but I think she needs to step it up).

Can't wait to hear Angie sing Gangnam Style.

So the audience picks the first song?

@Klope62 It simply means that's the theme that won the AT&T fan poll. The contestants still pick the song.
